This will be a little TMI (too much information), but, for women who are TTC (trying to conceive) or currently going through any type of fertility or ovulation issue, this may give you some hope.

After struggling for over 5 years with ovulation and fertility issues, having 3 miscarriages and one successful pregnancy, I feel like my cycles are finally back to normal.

A little about me:

We started TTC in February 2010, and that's when I learned all about my menstrual cycle and how to track it, researched all the signs and symptoms, and really became aware of what my body was doing and when.

We conceived in February 2011, and I miscarried at 13 weeks in May. Just 9 months later I was pregnant again with the help of Metformin and Clomid. My daughter was born in November 2012.

My cycles started back 8 months later. It took several months for things to be "normal" again, but I was still having really long cycles (about 33-37 days).

I found out that I was pregnant in January 2014 and miscarried at 9 weeks. I conceived again the next cycle and miscarried again at 6 weeks.

Ever since that last loss, I wasn't feeling any ovulation pain (which I always had before), and I did not have any cervical mucus. I just was not getting any of those good signs of ovulation that a woman would hope to get. I also wasn't tracking my BBT (basal body temperature) at the time.

Starting last month, I have begun using EndoFlex twice a day applied to the thyroid area (2 drops). I use Ylang Ylang once a day on my wrists (2 drops). I drink Grapefruit/Orange in my water (2 drops per 20 ounces, alternating daily). I typically diffuse combinations of the other oils in the Premium Starter Kit.

I just had a 28-day cycle, ovulation pain, and could even feel what SIDE I ovulated from. I haven't felt that in so long. I also had PLENTY of fertile cervical mucus, which I have lacked for over a year.

Nothing else has changed with me. The only thing different going on with me is the use of essential oils. I am also using the Everyday Oils Kit offered in the Premium Starter Kit, plus Orange, Grapefruit, and Ylang Ylang oils.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1."Results of bone density, bone mineral content, bone tensile strength and histological analysis also showed similar trend of results, which supported initial observations of this study. It is proposed that hydroalcoholic extract of dried clove buds has bone-preserving efficacy against hypogonadal [hormonally deficient] osteoporosis."Link
2."Therapy with beta-caryophyllene [present in many essential oils] may present a promising novel, non-toxic therapeutic option for patients with endometriosis."Link
3."After inhalation of clary sage oil, cortisol levels were significantly decreased.... Thyroid stimulating hormone was also reduced.... Clary sage oil has antidepressant-like effect...."Link
4."DHEA [a component of PD 80/20], an androstene hormone [precursor to estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, cortisone, and other hormones], has been shown to possess a wide range of beneficial biological effects mainly attributed to immune system modulation.... thus leading to beneficial effects in diverse human diseases including resistance to infection, neuroprotection, wound healing, diabetes, hepatic injury, cardiovascular disease, and cancer."Link
5."Most studies, as well as clinically applied experience, have indicated that various essential oils, such as lavender, lemon and bergamot can help to relieve stress, anxiety, depression and other mood disorders. Most notably, inhalation of essential oils can communicate signals to the olfactory system and stimulate the brain to exert neurotransmitters (e.g. serotonin and dopamine), thereby further regulating mood."Link
6."Foeniculum vulgare Mill, commonly called fennel, has been used in traditional medicine for a wide range of ailments related to digestive, endocrine, reproductive, and respiratory systems. Additionally, it is also used as a galactagogue agent for lactating mothers.... Foeniculum vulgare has emerged as a good source of traditional medicine and it provides a noteworthy basis in pharmaceutical biology for the development/formulation of new drugs and future clinical uses."Link
